PUC Chair Gladys Brown Dutrieuille Elected To Leadership Team For Regional Utility Regulators Organization; National Task Force On Severe Weather, COVID-19
On June 24, Public Utility Commission announced PUC Chair Gladys Brown Dutrieuille has been elected as part of a strong and diverse 2020-2021 leadership team for the Mid-Atlantic Conference of Regulatory Utilities Commissioners (MACRUC).
Chairman Dutrieuille will serve as MACRUC Second Vice President for the coming year following an election by fellow utility regulators from states across the Mid-Atlantic region – including Delaware, the District of Columbia, Kentucky, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Virginia and West Virginia.
The incoming MACRUC leadership team includes President Willie Phillips, from the District of Columbia Public Service Commission; First Vice President Tony O’Donnell, from the Maryland Public Service Commission; and Secretary/Treasurer Joseph Fiordaliso, from the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities.
Pennsylvania has a history of leadership in regional and national utility affairs, and Chairman Dutrieuille acknowledged the responsibility to advance key issues and contribute to the public good, noting, “from everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.”
The mission of MACRUC is to promote the region-wide advancement of public utility regulation and the related regulatory, legislative, and policy interests of MACRUC membership, consistent with MACRUC member state public utility commissions.
In addition to joining the newly-elected leadership team at MACRUC, Dutrieuille has also been named to a new national Task Force on Emergency Preparedness, Recovery and Resiliency, created by the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC).
The task force will explore utility issues related to weather emergencies and examine the national utility response to COVID-19.
Additionally, Dutrieuille also leads the NARUC Committee on Critical Infrastructure, which is a forum for discussing and promoting solutions to utility infrastructure security and delivery concerns.
